Good question.

Is 'hindsight' always 20/20 to an event of this magnitude

or would 'foresight' allow us the opportunity to prevent it?

I'd say the appreciation level would be about the same.

Well, if assuming 9/11 never happened you have to assume the conflicts with afghanistan and possible Iraq never happened, then maybe he could have a slightly higher one. But there is no telling.

I think one thing that would help him out A LOT is to be less secretive about everything. If they would just give us a straight shot, we'd be a lot more apathetic and open to fixing the problem instead of getting mad at him for covering it up.

That IS a good question. And no.

He would have a much lower approval rating. He, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Ashcroft and ilk have milked 9/11 for all its worth.

It has given him so many photo ops. It even gave him the opportunity to wear a flight suit.

What else would have given Ashcroft the opportunity to trash our Constitution?

The caption reads, "The Constitution just needed a little push."

It doesn't matter everybody gets upset when there is a Republican in the White House.
If a Democrat were doing the same thing he is, the Democrat would be lauded for his efforts.

I don't think 9/11 makes that big of a difference...i don't see how him or any other president could have done anything to avoid the tragedy

If 9/11 had never happened, Bush would have been in a lot worse shape.

9/11 took everyone's mind off of the Enron scandle, took people's minds off how many of Bush's people are ex-oil execs, took people's minds off the economy, took people's mind's off the way Bush got "elected"...

Bush thanks God every night for 9/11.

18 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Thursday 9/11/03 - 9:30:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, I think people resent Bush more then ever for going to war.
18 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Thursday 9/11/03 - 9:31:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, he'd have nothing to hide behind.

I tihn president bush should be more appreciated just because 9/11 did happen, i think that he handled it with such class.
18 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 11/5/03 - 10:45:02 AM EST (GMT-5)
im agreeing with CaptainTrips for this one, class? what class?
18 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 11/5/03 - 10:49:38 AM EST (GMT-5)
Personally, I liked Bush more after 9/11. I think something SHOULD have been done and Bush did the right thing.

Do you think Bill Clinton would've done what Bush did?

18 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 11/17/03 - 3:25:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
9/11 was the best thing to ever happen to Bush because every naive American was on his side all the sudden...remember before that when we were all open about the fact he's a crooked idiot?
18 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 11/20/03 - 7:06:52 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, certainly no one has called him that since.
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 12/7/03 - 1:12:27 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, I am sure he'd still find a way to screw things up. I still don't know what exactly Afghanistan or Iraq had to do with 9/11. He still (apparently) doesn't know where Bin Laden is.
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 12/7/03 - 1:19:37 AM EST (GMT-5)
Definitly not. If a dem had handled the situation the way Bush handled it, the left would still have their lips firmly planted all over Gore's ass.

President Bush's highest approval rating came following 9/11...it is one of the highest presidential approval ratings in history and has gone slowly downhill since then. So, no I do not think he would be more appreciated without 9/11 occuring.
18 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 2/11/04 - 11:51:58 AM EST (GMT-5)
There's absolutely no way of knowing. The entire beginning of his administration was eclipsed by this event. Key legislation passed because of it. It changed the entire political climate here. It set the mood for the Iraq war. Things would be *totally* different.
18 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 2/11/04 - 11:56:18 AM EST (GMT-5)
^^Agreed.
18 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 2/11/04 - 12:04:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
if it didnt happen on 9/11 it would of happened someime. but i think what bush did was a bit hurried by starting a war and finding some other excuse to start it!!!so i dont think he would be more appreciated because no one liked him then and a lot still dont like him.
mind you, blair is the most pathetic thing going!!
hes in love and not with cherie!!!
18 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 2/11/04 - 4:20:47 PM EST (GMT-5)
He is not appreciated by me
18 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 2/11/04 - 7:38:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
if bush had not ALLOWED 9/11 to happen, he would have been impeached by now...
